In honor of No-Shave November, the folks at the Hannibal’s Mark Twain Boyhood Home and Museum are hosting a Mustache Competition on November 25 to find the top Tri-State staches. Categories for which I am embarrassingly unqualified include “Manliest Stache”, “Dapper Stache”, and a third category dedicated to Hannibal’s most famous facial hair, “Mark Twain Stache”.

(That's the gold standard, gentlemen. The bar has been set.)

Entry fee is $5 per person per category per stache and all money raised goes to Hannibal’s James E. Cary Cancer Center. The competition takes place at the Museum Gallery (120 N. Main) at 3:00 on November 25. Contact Melissa at 573-221-9010 ext. 404 for more information.
